CONNECTINGSPACES – Transcultural Aspects of Architecture

DISCUSSION | Monday 30.11.2015, 19h
VENUE | EG Nord Atelierhaus, Lehargasse 8

The IKA platform Ecology, Sustainability and Cultural Heritage (ESC) was invited by FUTURE LECTURES* to setup a seminar to investigate social aspects of sustainability within contemporary societies that are under constant reconfiguration and reconstruction. How does, could and will spatial development and architectural culture reflect existing and emerging social conditions in diverse societal contexts?

Under the title „CONNECTINGSPACES – Transcultural Aspects of Architecture“ a team of students and teachers of the Institute of Art and Architecture setup an interdisciplinary public discussion in an exhibition setting. This format tries to bridge the gap between panel and audience.

Organized in collaboration with FORUM Umweltbildung, an initiative of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management and the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education and Woman's affairs.
